      We hired Joseph to guide us through the via ferrata del Patacones, and we were so delighted we did. He put our fears at... ease as soon as we met, was so patient and made the experience so enjoyable. I would definitely highly recommend him.... Thank You for a wonderful experience!!read more

      I spent a great sport climbing day in Siurana with TivissaRocks. Josep recommended fantastic routes in different... sectors of the cracks and knew every route I tried and could help me with important details of the beta. I did fully enjoy the relaxed humerous and interesting company. I can abolutely recommend TivissaRocks for an easy-going and well secured safe climbing day. Thanks a lot Patricia for the awesome pictures!read more

      I've climbed quite a bit, and also in Spain, but never had the opportunity to do a multi pitch there. I was so happy... when I found out about TivissaRocks, and even happier about the actual experience. Josep Maria is a great teacher! He has this patience and calmness that directly transfers over to you (which comes in very handy in climbing!), really taking his time to explain everything to you. You can tell he is a very experienced and hard climber, and I always felt very safe with him. To top it all, he is very knowledgeable about the area including all its vegetation, so there's even more learning ; ) Thanks for this amazing experience - I'll be back!read more

      My son has been on a competitive indoor climbing team for 2 yrs and is now transitioning to outdoor sport climbing. He... had been obsessing about going to northern Spain to develop his skills, but I wanted to make sure he had professional guidance to do it safely. TivissaRocks was the perfect choice. Our guide/climbing partner got us to the crags in Siurana and Margalef with the right routes first for warm up and then to challenge my son's ability. Also, if my son wasn't trying to on-sight, he gave us detailed information about each route that our guide book doesn't provide. I highly recommend TivissaRocks' climbing partner services to anyone who is transitioning to outdoor climbing or to any intermediate or advanced climber who needs a partner to climb in Catalonia. Thanks again Josep, Patricia and Crag-dog Lynn for an unforgettable experience!read more
